The 7 characteristics of a digitally competent teacher

Written by Jeff Dunn

Being a proper digitally competent teacher is not as simple as picking up an iPhone and tweeting. You need to be a good digital citizen, understand privacy, and more.

In an effort to clarify and explain some of the most important characteristics that a digitally competent teacher must have, we whipped up this fun visual. It’s designed to make it abundantly clear which skills you should have, who should consider themselves ‘digitally competent’ and more.

We know the audience of Daily Genius is a lot more than just teachers – so we hope you find some value in this graphic even if you’re not a teacher.

After all, being a good digital citizen and understanding privacy (just 2 of the characteristics) are some of the most important things anyone using the Internet should understand.
